Federico Gardella - …come un’apparenza

for trombone and electronics

In …come un’apparenza the counterpoint between the trombone and computerised human voice finds its point of conjunction in singing. It is here that the word loses its sense and changes into pure sound. In the first part of the composition the trombone acts as a sort of catalyst, but also as an alter ego of the human voice; in the second part the sound of trombone turns progressively into singing, but as soon as this happens, the singing vanishes, like an apparition
